On September 19, 2007, Yuvraj achieved one of the most difficult records of all time, becoming the first cricketer to score six sixes in an over in a T20I match. The incident took place in a T20 World Cup match between India and England in Kingsmead Durban. The unfortunate bowler who faced the brunt of Yuvraj’s force was pacer Stuart Broad.

The score was 171/3 at the end of the 18th over. India had its hopes high to put on a good score with Yuvraj Singh and the then skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni on the crease. The Men in Blue went for broke in the death overs and punished the English bowlers.

Just before Broad’s over, Yuvraj had a verbal altercation with England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff. This possibly fired up the Punjab batsman and the rest is history.
